The specific objectives of this study are to (i) investigate the characteristics of longitudinal buffeting responses of the multispan cable-stayed bridge, focusing on the effects of insufficient longitudinal stiffness of central towers and partially longitudinal constraints between the bridge deck and part of bridge towers; (ii) investigate the effects using viscous fluid dampers for mitigation of longitudinal buffeting response of the multispan cable-stayed bridge; and (iii) arrive at the values of optimal design parameters of the viscous fluid dampers for mitigation of longitudinal buffeting responses of the bridge using a multi-objective optimization design method.
